Sewing Circle New This Year!

In this introduction to textile arts, children will explore embroidery as they increase finger strength and dexterity, helping to develop fine motor skills as they delight in mastering sewing skills. Throughout the semester children will work both on building skills and completing projects. Sewing requires a level of mental engagement that encourages children to develop conscientious focus as their hands and eyes work together to completely engage in the task. This class will be a fun opportunity for children to learn a new (and old!) art form while spending time with friends.
